HOUSTON - On Thursday, October 11, Great Day Houston host Deborah Duncan spoke with Jessica Wiggins and Inge Ford from the nonprofit, BikeHouston.
BikeHouston is on a mission to transform Houston by creating safe bikeways in order to improve the quality of life of all Houstonians. Through partnerships with the City and other organizations, BikeHouston works to expand the mileage and access to high quality bike lanes and trails, to educate all road users, and to enhance enforcement of the laws that save lives.
The organization advocates to ensure that bicyclists’ needs are included in government work from planning to construction to law enforcement.
Their community education programs teach motorists about cyclists’ rights and cyclists about their rights and responsibilities. BikeHosuton also hosts events designed to empower everyone to start riding a bike.
